It was so easy because LOST is full of instantly recognizable symbols and physical, tangible things - a broken airplane, a set of knives, a wheelchair, a metal case, the Virgin Mary statues. It wasn't a stretch at all to come up with 108 references - especially because there are so many LOST fans in the Threadless community that helped by using the blog forum to send me suggestions for more symbols.
So the design is a tribute to the very visual nature of the show - stark black and white, physical conflict - (gun beats knife, smoke monster beats gun!) and the physical items that in many cases tie a character to his/her checkered past - Charlie's Drive Shaft ring, Kate's toy plane, Sawyer's letter (He's a complex guy, sweetheart)
I'm a huge fan of the show - in fact, I work in television, and a dream job would be to work on or write for a brilliant series like this. As I worked on the design, I went back to the very beginning and started watching the episodes straight through again. I'd forgotten how much I love the simplicity of the first few seasons - "Guys, where are we??" - but I also love the added layers of intrigue and mystery with each successive season, and of course I'm sad to see it end.
So I hope the shirt (and hoodie) can help soothe the sadness just a little bit and we can carry on in the midst of our impending LOSTless state.
